Why Study the History of Neuroscience?
Room 305 |
Bedford Way | London | United Kingdom
Speaker Information: Dr. Richard E. Brown, University Research Professor, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Abstract: The general purpose of this presentation is to show how history is embedded in each phase of neuroscience research and teaching. The presentation has four parts. First, what is history? Second, why study the history of neuroscience? In the third part, I will show some of the work we are doing at Oxford on our "Saving the history of neuroscience" project using examples from our history of neuroscience website. Finally I will give an example of my research on Donald O. Hebb, entitled "Hebb and Cattell and the origin of the concept of "crystallized" and "fluid" intelligence.
